laura,i just read all of your iraqi poems ...very powerful. you have alot of empathy for all those people who have suffered because of our invasion of their country. as americans who have never really experienced this kind of devastation, these poems help us realize how awful life has become for the people of iraq. thank you for reminding us laura...
The middle stanza gets to the heart of the matter methinks (I once worked for kbr - ugh).Your poems are normally long and passionate (like the best Otis Redding soul flights) but I must say that in these you have compressed coal into diamonds.
VERY STRIKING!I need to come back and read these carefully!!!!
You know my friend those first two comments above are right on target. I read these via Rumia when first published with great excitement. But now I have come to digest them over my morning coffee, to feel them as they should be felt. You truly are one of deep compassion.
All these poems are a real tour de force, Laura. I am humbled by your compassion, as the others noted above. It's one thing to know the facts and quite another to feel them in your heart. I hope many people will be drawn to your pages.
